The family-run business, Barberis Canonico, are masters of all wool mill activities including their elaborate dyeing process they have refined since 1663. This flannel fabric is one of their classics, we have always known it and used it for more than ten years at Germain Tailors. It is also loved by many high-end fashion brands around the world. For many years now, the mill has worked very hard on sustainability.
This Flannel jacket is 30 hours of pure craftsmanship. It is a Half Canvas blazer, completely custom made in Shanghai by our tailors skilled and loving hands, which also produce men’s suits for prestigious fashion houses.
We like the construction of this Flannel jacket because the canvas only runs through the chest and lapels. This way it feels more robust and comfortable than a fused jacket but also lighter and less structured than a fully canvassed suit. The blazer will, therefore, have a structure and at the same time an elegant fluidity. The canvas fabric also gives the jacket greater durability compared to a fused construction jacket.
The Neapolitan Trim fit has high armholes, thin shoulder pads and thin sleeve-head pads which creates a very gentle roped sleeve. The Soft Comfort fit also has thin shoulder pads but it does not have sleeve-head pads. The sleeve head is made with the "spalla camicia" technique (also called "shirt sleeve"), which means the sleeve-head is natural and not roped.
This single-breasted, 2 buttoned blazer is half-lined, has 2 flap pockets and two side vents. The generous 8,5cm lapel is modern and versatile. The chest pocket "Barchetta" is cut with a curve similar to the shape of a boat, which confers harmonious proportions.
